Lattice-based cryptography has recently emerged as a prominent candidate for secure communication in the quantum age. Its security relies on the hardness of certain lattice problems, and the inability of known lattice algorithms, such as lattice sieving, to solve these problems efficiently. In this paper we investigate the similarities between lattice sieving and evolutionary algorithms, how various improvements to lattice sieving can be viewed as applications of known techniques from evolutionary computation, and how other evolutionary techniques can benefit lattice sieving in practice.
